United States travel guide

Specialty Museums · Nightlife · Beaches
More than the country of car-packed streets seen in TV shows and movies, the United States of America is a complex and diverse home to over 300 million people living in a wide range of landscapes and climates. From its big-city skyscrapers to its sprawling natural parks, the country's ''melting pot'' combines many ethnic groups that share a strong sense of national identity despite their cultural differences. A country of road trips and big blue skies, the United States harbors orderly cities filled with restaurants, parks, museums, and innumerable sightseeing opportunities, as well as pristine natural areas perfect for a holiday in the great outdoors. To see as much as you can of this diverse land quickly, drive over some of the more than 6 million km (4 million mi) of highways leading through deserts, mountain peaks, fertile fields, and giant urban centers.

San Juan Islands travel guide

Dolphin & Whale Watching · State Parks · Landmarks
Experience island living Pacific Northwest-style by visiting the San Juan Islands. Of the 176 named islands here, Lopez, Orcas, and San Juan are the three that cater to visitors. Orca whales roam the waters from April to September, and rolling farmland inland gives way to small coastal towns filled with art galleries and boutiques. The islands' small mountains offer vistas over the water to the snow-capped peaks of the Olympic mountain range. The island region offers prime sea kayaking, biking tours, birding, and saltwater fishing. The populated isles attract a lot of summer tourism but remain quiet the remainder of the year.
